The notion of reception is what allows an iPhone 8 or an iPhone 8 Plus to communicate with the network and transfer data to other devices connected to it. Whether you are sending a text message or making a call, you need a good quality reception for the message to be delivered and for your call to have great audio quality and not interrupt when you expect less. If you’ve noticed any of these issues on your smartphone lately, perhaps you should consider our suggestions from below. Read on and see what you’d like to try. If you have questions, message us with confidence, as always!
Option #1 – reset the network connection with the Airplane Mode
It sounds fancy but, really, all you have to do is to turn the Airplane Mode On and then back Off. The reason is quite straightforward: with this mode turned on, all the connections of your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus with the network are interrupted. When you turn it back off, the cell service is reactivated. So, this is kind of a reset of your cell service, which, when established, will start scanning once again for a signal from the closest cellular tower.
If this bad connection was the cause of your bad reception, turning the Airplane Mode On and Off should fix it. The good news is that doing this will only require you to access the Quick Settings menu (by swiping up from the bottom of the screen) and tapping on the Airplane Mode icon listed in there – one time to turn it On and one more time to turn it Off.
Option #2 – reset the network settings of your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus
Last but not least, you can and you should reset the settings of your network. Go on and open the Settings app. Go to General, as usual, but access the Reset menu. Look for the option “Reset Network Settings” and select it. With this final step, most likely you will manage to get rid of the bad reception. Texting and calling will become, once again, the easy and enjoyable process that your iPhone 8 / iPhone 8 Plus used to offer you. Try it and you will convince yourself!
